How small are we, or at least how tiny is my car. Single exposure.

OT--

There's a youtube video about the relative sizes of stars. It really puts our world (or our car😁) in perspective. The sizes are WAY beyond my ability to even imagine!

100 Billion stars in the Milky Way, a 100 Billion Galaxies in the Universe that's nearly 100 Billion light years in diameter. Hurts your head if you think about it for too long.

Reminds me of a Monty Python song.......just missing there must be intelligent life out there somewhere, why isn't there any here on Earth

Large Duck-orchid (Caleana major)

 

Nice to see the ducks out again. The flowers are quite small, smaller than a 5c coin.

Just a couple of Orchids from the Arthur Pieman Conservation Area, West Coast of Tasmania, near Arthur River.

Found 30 different types over three days, weather not so good for the last day.

 

Caladenia dienema, Winswept Spider Orchid, probably about 70-80 mm across.

Pterostylis aphylla, Leafless Greenhood.

The great big thumb on the left, only there for size comparison

While looking around for orchids this fly caught my eye, it looked odd.

 

First shot from the side that I first saw the fly.

From above the fly's back.

Never seen anything like this before!

Spiked by a plant!

How did that happen?

I expect this level of expertise from you. Yet another outstanding image. 

Don’t ever let me down.

Got an image of the camera. 

Its not a great image, there is some out of focus bits, not sure if it was on the negative or from the contact print. I dont have a 90mm x 120mm film holder, so I tape it a 4x5 film holder and might not be perfectly flat. The Orthochromatic  film has a nice tonal range and I kinda like concrete in the negative, seems to be more imposing. I think I need to put a little light on the lightning rod.

Thanks, I only try not to let myself downs and I set a low bar.

 Got to love metal and red bellows.

I took a look at the camera. Golly. 

 

I did weddings for 12 years with Pentax and blads in 70s and 80s. I remember the Horseman. I think I have that right. 

 

Do do you know the camera?

Horseman were made in Japan and there were quite a few different models http://camera-wiki.org/wiki/Komamura

Weddings would be a tough gig, defiantly not for me, you are a brave man. Do you still have the hasselblad ?

My latest camera has blue bellows and was made in 1890's in Frankfurt, is 24cm x 30cm and has 3 plate holders for wet plate. Think I will start wet plate next year sometime at the moment Im using xray film with it.

I originally had the ELM, the same one as was taken to the moon. Later bought a new 500CM from Teds. Ted himself use to go OS and bring back a few bodies. I had one. I had a few blad lenses for it. Chronically expensive. Also I had 24 exposure backs. Only needed a few film re-loads per wedding.

 

my blads came with the right angle viewer so left and right were left and right. As expensive and all as they were mine broke a main spring to the shutter. The flash I had at the time was the Metz meccablitz. Wet cell back then. I’d burnout a flash tube a year.
